Since the early seventies, Oxford Instruments is the forerunner for developments in benchtop NMR instruments as there are many users currently in the field with the QP20, QP20, MQA7020 and Maran Ultra. Oxford Instruments has been a highly specialized organization with advanced measurement techniques such as NMR and XRF techniques. Anaspec Solutions is now able to supply its new and existing customers in the food industry a rapid analysis of fat, protein in products like chocolate or crisps. Applications with NMR are diverse and are found throughout the whole industry. The benchtop NMR of Oxford is well established in the textile industry. Besides other advanced analysis packages such as laser diffraction and or FT(N)IR. Anaspec Solutions is able to offer throughout the whole industry attractive analytical combinations and thus creating synergy with the various analytical techniques within Anaspec Solutions.

Short explanation about NMR

Nuclear magnetic resonance(NMR) is a physical phenomenon which magnetic nuclei in a magnetic field absorb and re-emit electromagnetic radiation. This energy is at a specific resonance frequency which depends on the strength of the magnetic field and the magnetic properties of the isotope of the atoms. NMR allows the observation of specific quantum mechanical magnetic properties of the atomic nucleus. Many scientific techniques exploit NMR phenomena to study molecular physics crystals,  non-crystalline materials through NMR spectroscopy. NMR is also routinely used in advanced medical imaging techniques, such as magnetic resonance imaging

The MQC features a new, compact magnet for minimum benchtop footprint; modular design for easy serviceability; upgradeable firmware, and software self-diagnostics to aid servicing. The MQC requires no external PC, as a standard Windows™ PC motherboard is built inside, with USB access, Ethernet connection and a hard disc for data storage. The MQC uses Oxford Instruments’ acclaimed MultiQuant and EasyCal software packages, allowing simple calibration and measurement of up to four constituents in samples. Every MQC system is supplied complete with all software, hardware and sampling accessories required for the application it will be used for. Packaged application methods provide ease of set up and use to optimize results, and specially developed Setting-up Standards allow calibrations to be easily maintained. Different tubes with different diameters are available and the NMR can be built in an automated concept for the solid fat content which is needed because of the different temperature profiles.
